I surprised a group of friends in conversation a few years back who were discussing the pros and cons of living forever. I’m not sure who was more surprised: me, that they wouldn’t want to live forever, or they, that I most assuredly would.
When asked why I blurted out, because I want to see what happens next.
When I say what happens next I’m not talking about next week’s Eastenders or property prices in 2009, I’m talking about this kind of thing.
Structures we haven’t seen – hadn’t even imagined before now – that are big enough to drag whole groups of galaxies towards them.
What the hell happens next???
